$1.6B Powerball Jackpot (Finally) Has 3 Winners

At least three winners will have to split the massive $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot. 

4, 8, 19, 27, 34 and the Powerball of 10 were the lucky numbers winners in California, Florida and Tennessee picked before Wednesday night's drawing.

That would give the winners about $500.3 million apiece.

One of the tickets was sold at this 7-Eleven in Chino Hills, California. When word spread, the community came to celebrate. 

"They're celebrating in the store. I'm very proud and excited," store clerk M. Faroqui, who believes he sold the winning ticket, told KABC.

The $1.6 billion jackpot was the largest in Powerball history. The jackpot will now reset at $40 million.
